  • 1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup shredded Velveeta


  1. In a greased 13x9-in. baking dish, layer the potatoes, corn, green pepper, onion and carrots. Crumble beef over vegetables. Pour tomato sauce over top. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Can you freeze Layered Beef Casserole?

Before baking, cover and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight and bake as directed, increasing time as needed to reach 160°. Sprinkle with cheese before serving.

Editor's Note: Layered Beef Casserole can be divided between two 1-1/2 quart baking dishes. Bake one casserole to enjoy now and freeze the other for another meal. When ready to use, thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Bake as directed and sprinkle with cheese before serving.
